They have large animals in the armed forces? Do they get the whole VA thing too?

In a sense, yes. Lots of animals serve, Lord Admiral Sprior. Mules and horses would be amongst the larger animals represented, I'd imagine, in the US Army. Elephants are probably still used in the Myanmar or Thai armies. Many more dogs (sniffer, guard, patrol, etc.) represented in our army. Some of the veterinarians that accompanied Gulf War I's liberation of Kuwait found themselves busily taking care of abandoned lions and the like at the zoo.

It's a man's life in the USA Veterinary Corps.

Isn't "Of" also capitalized in this title too?

Make that middle part:

"Lord Admiral Lord Sprior"

Best to play it safe.

Pity that. They made for some fine archers.

Kevin Costner is one such example. I had not realized that Nottingham dialect left one with a decided Midwest American 'corn pone' accent, as noted in Mr. Costner's "Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves" performance.

Here's a question for his...well...the chap known on THE THREAD as "sprior": With so many bloody "Robin Hood" movies laying claim to the Nottingham legends, you must have a ranking system for judging them? Care to let us in on your Nottingham-esque judgements?

Then you can safely claim it and no one will care.

Wouldn't the Queen screamed "Off with his head" for that? I hear the royals are pretty touchy about people falsely claiming noble titles... And with the RN not performing..well, not as one might expect in the war...

Now I'm curious about what qualifies as a "small animal" and how those are used.

I know I'm not British and thus dont get a vote but I humbly submit the candidature of Cary Elwes.

I figured you for the sort that likes your Robin Hood-Men in Tights. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I'd add crabs and lice as well but on further consideration that seems to be a somewhat different medical specialization.

Never know when they might get a life-threatening blood blister.

Our newest agent, Lt Col Léone Sextus Denys Oswolf Fraudati-filius Tollemache-Tollemache de Orellana Plantagenet Tollemache-Tollemache, reports that Mandfalay is relatively lightly held. Op Buggritt is well on its way.

Is he of the Liverpool Tollemache-Tollemaches perchance?
